* LuckyCharmsTitle: The logo for ''Leifthrasir'' is rendered as LEIFÞRASIR, with a thorn. Thorn is a regular letter in Icelandic and Old Norse, but is unlikely to be widely recognised.

* CompetitiveBalance: The faster paced and more action packed style introduced in ''Leifthrasir'', it isn’t some one-sided gameplay overhaul where the player characters become more versatile while the enemies remain the same as they were; the enemies were given more HP, they’ve become more aggressive and come in larger numbers, however the real notable changes were given to the bosses, in addition to having much more HP, they’ve turned into real sponges, soaking all the damage and some have new attacks that are completely devastating; then there's the exclusive bosses only found in ''Leifthrasir'', they have been made from the ground up with the new gameplay in mind, with a whole gallery of varied attacks that will annihilate those who aren’t well prepared.

Of particular note is [[spoiler:Onyx,]] who either has [[spoiler: his vulcans]] kill the player off-screen, sees [[spoiler: Gwendolyn kill herself trying to fight him]], or no-sells [[spoiler: Oswald before goading him into overusing his shadow form to turn himself into a revenant]].

* LostForever: Do ''not'' spend Valentinian commemorative coins (the highest denomination of coin) anywhere except at Pooka restaurants.

* LostForever: Do ''not'' spend Valentinian commemorative coins (the highest denomination of coin) anywhere except at Pooka restaurants. (The remaster reworks the currency system so that the Pooka restaurants are now the only place you ''can'' spend Valentinian coins, removing the risk.)



* PayingInCoins: The player can invoke this trope. You have to manually select the coins you want to pay with when buying things. The coins vary from the cheap Ragnanival Silver (worth 1G) to the rare and valuable Commemorative Coin (worth 20G). It's possible to buy expensive things and pay them with a truckload of Ragnan Silver.
** This comes in handy when you reach the Pooka Village and find out that the restaurant and cafe only accept Valentinian coins (and require a specific type for each dish.)
** In the remaster, you only use Ragnan Silver & Titanian Gold as Currency in Buying Items, Valentinian Coins are traded in Pooka Village Restaurants as payments for their dishes, food items are no longer required.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Almost ''everything'' done by the main characters to further their own agendas unwittingly ends up making the Apocalypse happen. In fact, just using [[spoiler:Psyphers is slowly killing the world by disrupting the cycle of souls and new life]]. They are the Cauldron on a smaller scale. None of them know of the negative consequences their own actions result in. The only character that is fully knowledgeable on Armageddon and is actively attempting to stop it is [[spoiler:Velvet]].

** The Prophecies state that [[spoiler:only two humans will survive the Armageddon and rule the new world, indeed only two humans survived, Gwendolyn and Oswald; Cornelius and Velvet were not humans anymore, then again all other races, including Pookas, died as well and a millennia later Velvet and Cornelius became human again, so they are just that good at avoiding fate]].
